Author Kristl Story, TheBudgetDiet.com


  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands.
  2. Roll out on a floured surface to about 1/2" thick - I cheated and just pressed out my dough.
  3. Use cookie cutters to make fun shapes.
  4. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 325º for 20 minutes.
